FeatureCAM – 3D Solid Model Turning (Fanuc, Siemens, Heidenhain)

To ensure a positive learning experience course size is limited to 6 attendees.

Cost of course is £600.00 + VAT per attendee.


FeatureCAM is the unique CAD/CAM system that uses feature-based and knowledge-based technologies for automated machining, minimising programming times for milling machines, lathes, multi-tasking lathes, mill-turn centres and wire EDM machines.

At the Mills CNC Training Academy we offer 4 different FeatureCAM courses - FeatureCAM 2.5D Milling, FeatureCAM 2.5D Turning, FeatureCAM 3D Solid Milling and FeatureCAM 3D Solid Turning.

Applicants must already be well versed in Engineering and able to read drawings. The level of this course is higher than the 2.5D course, therefore it is advised that the 2.5D FeatureCAM course is completed before attending this 3D Solid Turning course.

ISO Programming and a good understanding of Mathematics would be advantageous.

Specific course content includes:

  • Importing Machine Models for Machine Simulation
  • Importing Geometry using DXF Files
  • Importing Solid/Surface Models
  • Working with Solid/Surface Models to create Geometry / Curves and Features
  • Stitching, Wrapping, Flow and other methods of modelling
  • Sub Spindle Working & Introduction to Twin Turret
  • Use of Wait Codes
  • Using Rotating B Axis for Angled Drilling & Milling etc.
  • Transform, Translate, Rotate, Scale, Reflect
  • Features for C & Y Axis Milling
  • Decription & Use of A.F.R. (Automatic Feature Recognition)
  • Post Processor Location & Editing Post Processor Information
  • (Post Editing is covered on a separate course if required)
